Missed Deadline Threatens LI Supervisor’s Office

SMITHTOWN, N.Y. -

The job of a Long Island town supervisor who has served in the post for 35 years is threatened because of a missed deadline, CBS News reported. The Smithtown clerk declared the office vacant after incumbent Republican Patrick Vecchio failed to sign his written oath of office within 30 days of taking office Jan. 1 after being re-elected to a 13th term. Vecchio says in the past the town clerk has brought him the papers to sign. A special meeting is scheduled for Thursday to reappoint Vecchio to the position.
